Natal Cares combines mobile technology, machine learning and low-cost innovation to combat maternal and infant mortality in Nigeria. Due to a lack of health care information in under-served communities, superstition rather than medically approved information is widespread. Natal Cares reaches out to women via their mobile phones in rural areas and Internally Displaced Persons Camps, providing mental healthcare support, affordable delivery kits, medical monitoring and emergency services to at-risk pregnant women and nursing mothers.
